Tensions Rise As French Citizens Blockade Calais Port Calling For “Demolition” Of Migrant “Jungle” Camp:

French farmers, truckers and police have all united in a major protest in Calais, France calling on President Hollande to announce specific plans for the demolition of the “Jungle” camp which houses around 7,000-9,000 refugees primarily from Northern Africa and the Middle East.  Farmers and truckers have parked their trucks and tractors on major freeways effectively creating a blockade of the Calais port. 

Accorded to RT, violent crime within the camp has been on the rise and presents an increased danger to Calais residents.  Reports have surfaced of some migrants attacking passing motorists, throwing various objects at windscreens and cutting trees in an attempt to hijack vehicles.  There have also been reports of migrants threatening drivers with chainsaws and machetes. 

One local Calais resident described the chaos to The New Observer as follows:

“They turn up in the center of the town, numbering 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, all over the place. They smash cars with iron bars. They assault people; they even assault children. They rob and they rape. What we endure is unimaginable. Continue reading »

UN Begged to Intervene After Refugees Sew Mouths Shut:

Calais, France — Desperate volunteers in a Calais refugee camp have issued an urgent plea to the U.N. to recognise the plight of a group of Iranians who sewed their mouths shut a week ago. The extreme protest — joined in solidarity by a British volunteer — was initiated to draw attention to the atrocities being carried out by the French government.

The latest shocking tale to unfold from the Calais camp — known as The Jungle — began on March 1st to raise awareness of the human rights violations taking place. Homeless, jobless, and now hopeless, eight Iranian men aged between 17 and 46 sewed each other’s lips shut in the extreme form of protest against the forced evictions of the southern side of the squalid camp. Their bold move has been supported by British volunteer, Tom Radcliffe, who has joined in solidarity. Continue reading »

Let 3,000 Calais Migrants Come To UK: Corbyn
The Government denies it is not doing enough as David Cameron considers taking thousands of unaccompanied migrant children.
Jeremy Corbyn has told Sky News up to 3,000 people waiting in makeshift camps in Calais should be processed if they want to come to Britain.

The Labour leader said that the Labour Party has been too defensive about its immigration record and failed to make the case for the benefits of migration.
